Yaki Curry (grilled curry) is Moji-Harbor’s, in Fukuoka prefecture, beloved local dish, enjoyed for over 60 years. There are numbers of local cafes serving this dish around Moji-Harbor. The noodle itself is seasoned too which makes the soup blend in better with noodles. It’s a great combination of spicy curry soup with the mellow flavor of cheese.’

This sounds really good – as many of you know, I’m a staunch advocate for curry of all kinds, and Japanese curry is one of my favorite varieties. Let’s see how it fares.

Broth does indeed have a cheese and curry taste to it, but not really finding the combo all that impressive. I think if it included more vegetable or meat it might be better. Nevertheless, it does have a curry and cheese flavor. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4901734037071.
